Secluded and wild, but close to Asheville! A 15 minute drive to West Asheville, 20 minutes to downtown Asheville. Lots to see and do in the Asheville area. In addition to camping, the Big Cove Santuary comprises the Big Cove Resiliency Laboratory, and the Big Cove Rewilding Institute. Numerous nature trails. There are wildlife observation opportunities, including abundant bird life. A small waterfall and a spring feed bathing pond is on the property. WiFi is available near basecamp. There are two outdoor toilets:, a Porta John (that drops into a septic tank), and a composting toilet (that smells better). There is an outdoor sink for guests. One site provides for RVs and parking on site (and has a 120 V electrical outlet). Tent sites require carrying gear a short (or moderate) distance. There are several sites with fire rings. Firewood is provided.
